Program Terms

General Guidelines

Discount codes Policy

We encourage affiliates to contact us for exclusive voucher/discount codes and additional incentives.

Affiliates may only promote codes that are provided through the affiliate program (either through our account or directly from the Affiliate Manager).

We reserve the right to withhold payment of commission if unauthorized discount codes are used in an affiliate sale. We appreciate that consumers may use discount codes that they have found via a site other than that which is awarded the sale and this will be investigated before decisions on commission payment are made. Any affiliate found to be displaying unauthorized codes may also have their commission set to zero until the code(s) are removed.

Where discount codes are issued with an expiry date this should be clearly displayed, and codes should be removed or explicitly marked as expired after this date unless you are advised otherwise. Any affiliates displaying expired codes without marking them as being expired may be suspended from the program. Please also ensure that you observe the IAB discount code best practice guidelines.
